Results

For the 2009.2.0 release, we had 1500 (exactly) downloads of the windows installer, from May 5 - May 9.


In the future, we will likely make use of Sigbjorn Finne's BAMSE work.

BAMSE is a MSI package creator. It has the ability to specify if you want to provide support for installing your Cabal package after having unpacked it, i.e., it is assumed that you are shipping a pre-built version of the package with the MSI.
